"The Children are so incredibly thin"

Famine in Madagascar

SOS Children’s Villages

We create a loving, dignified and warm home for children in need, and support families who are in difficult situations. We ensure that children and adolescents have access to education and medical care. In 137 countries around the world and with over 2700 programs and projects, we offer sustainable help, on a long-term and targeted basis – with the support of our donors.

Donate wisely - give twice

Change the world for families in need, in poverty or after disasters: Give the gift of goats, emergency aid packages, water pumps or microcredits. Donate just like that or in the name of your loved ones on their birthday instead of flowers or chocolates. You can be sure of double the joy!
